Yes. We want to recognize all LAVC graduates who are transferring to four-year colleges and universities for Fall 2022 on the college's electronic marquees.

Email the following information to LAVC News from your LACCD email address on or before Friday, May 27, 2022 at 4 p.m.:

  • your name,
  • student ID number, and
  • a screen shot of your university/college acceptance letter with your name (block out your address and university student ID)

Receiving Your Diploma

Fall 2021 graduates may have received their diplomas already; however, Spring 2022 candidates should receive their diploma by mail after the start of the Fall 2022 semester (approximately in October, 2022).

Make sure that your address is correct on the Student Information System. To change your address, you need to fill out a change-of-address form in the Admissions Office.

Please note that the Graduation Office will first certify your spring semester grades in order to issue a diploma. Your participation in the graduation ceremony does not indicate you have completed all requirements for graduation

In the meantime, if you need proof of graduation, you may request an official copy of your transcripts from the Admissions and Records Office, or you can print an unofficial transcript from the Student Information System.
